Method Primary source abstract: "The full complement of homeobox transcription factor sequences, including genes and pseudogenes, was determined from the analysis of 10 complete genomes from flowering plants, moss, Selaginella, unicellular green algae, and red algae. [Investigators'] exhaustive genome-wide searches resulted in the discovery in each class of a greater number of homeobox genes than previously reported."
Comments P.498 left column 3rd paragraph: "In plants, similar numbers of homeobox genes can be found, e.g., 110 in Arabidopsis thaliana (primary source)."
